I’m not seeing a converter. Would the sport (my current fave!) converter work? I hate using cartridges but really really really heart the copper!
Isn't that clip shown in the photo the one for the AL Sport? You can see the edges that wrap around the cap.

Ah, yes, we had to recycle that image, but it is the exact same style for the Liliput. Just smaller, and round. We're working on getting better photos for this add-on asap.
If you want black, its 51 bucks on amazon... Massdrop isn't competing well anymore.
Rainz
It says -$20 for the black , isn’t that $44.99?
Can anyone comment on the smoothness of the pen and fine nib? I'd love to know.

I have a liliput in brass with a medium nib, smooth body, silky smooth threads when capping and uncapping, my medium nib is buttery smooth on paper as well! great pen!
i'd rather get it from Nibsmith and have it tuned for an additional 15 bucks. Kaweco has QC issues
Where are you finding this Pen at an MSRP less than $80.00?
aawillis1956
not MSRP obviously, but I bought mine at the Baltimore pen show for 60.... the problem now is that I want one in copper :T
sooo..... This drop got cancelled? Or only just some of us?
rats. I got nothin from Massdrop.

That sux. Having said that.... don't give up. I have been very happy with much of my Massdrop experience. Even if you never buy anything here, the site is CHOCK-FULL of ideas and items that you might never have seen before, and which you can search out elsewhere for, perhaps, a better price or for a variant that's not available here. For instance; they are selling a set of bracelets here. If you go to the actual makers web-site, you will find all the same bracelets, for more, BUT, if you use a 30% discount coupon they offer, the bracelets cost a bit less than the Massdrop price, with free shipping in the US. I would not have known about them, were it not for Massdrop.
;)
do stick around, and best of luck!

This is what I have started doing as well!
Having an insane amount of starting/skipping issues. I have the BB nib. Any ideas? I think the nib has the baby's bottom problem but can't really tell.

Fixed the issue by buying some micro-mesh and smoothing the nib out myself. First time doing this so I thought I was going to screw up badly and have to buy a replacement nib. Results are pretty good. While holding the pen normally and writing with it, it feels great. No more starting/skipping issues and it is smooooth. However, when the pen kind of shifts/rotates too much to the left, I can tell the nib wasn't smoothed down too well there. Looks like an ever so slightly teensy weensy bit more tipping material. It's definitely something I can fix with the micro-mesh, but I'm worried about doing too much to it and ruining it overall. As long as I'm writing with my sweet spot, I feel like the writing experience is as intended for the Liliput, without the shitty baby's bottom. The pen doesn't rotate while in hand often so that's good.
Clip picture still wrong (I think it was commented in the past drops as well). I suppose that the one delivered will be of correct size and color (material).
can you swap out the nibs on these?
omkarma
Yep, these nibs easily twist out of the grip section, housed with the feed in a threaded black tube.
omkarma
Ish. You can swap out the entire nib and feed section. The nib itself isn't a standard size. You'll either be stuck fiddling/fitting your own, or you'll need to go with a pre-assembled nib and feed from Kaweco.
After researching, the MSRP listed is for the Aluminum version, while the Massdrop price listed is for the Brass version (MSRP of $80).
The photo of the clip is wrong, it shows the one for the Sport.
Obviously the MSRP is wrong at the listing price for the brass model if you do a little research.
Interesting decision, charging more than the base price. It'd also be nice if the steel version were available for purchase.

MSRP shown is for the aluminium version, which is priced at $45 for this drop. Base price shown is for the Brass version, which is MSRP $80, I think.
Uh why are these priced over the MSRP price?! Wtf massdrop. :|

We inadvertently listed the MSRP for the Aluminum version first, but this has been corrected. Thanks for flagging!

Gotcha, thanks for the fix. :)
What's the deal here? There is no discount in fact it is more expensive than the actual price, or is there something off with page?

@iRedYuki is right. Sorry about the error!
Great price... 64.99$ instead of 55.00$!!! What a deal...

for 7 days I'm not getting any shipping updates on any tracking sites. The shipment was processed through New York facility on June 13 and that's it. New York facility to Canada shouldn't be too complicated and having no news whatsoever makes me worried, especially when it says in the email that the expected arrival date for my package is on or around June 20....
I'm super disappointed with this drop.... Waited more than month and got word that I won't be getting my pen.... What the heck massdrop.
Put in an order almost a month ago. Got updates that the order arrived at massdrop warehouse A week ago. Got an email today that the pen was backordered and I wouldn't be getting it. Why did I have to wait almost a month for this process start to finish just to be told I am not getting a pen? I want my month back.
Copper Liliput arrived this evening. Love the pen. It's tiny, pencil thin, really only usable with the cap posted... but the cap screws into the back. Very clever.
I'm very disappointed in the nib. Hard-starts badly. Not really acceptable quality on a pen this expensive. Doesn't appear to be possible to use non-Kaweco nibs on these pens, which is a little disappointing. It's probably a baby-butt issue. I'm sure it's nothing that can't be fixed.
Would be more interested if the copper ones were still available...and it wasn't exorbitantly more expensive than the other 3. That price hop is ugly, unlike the pen.
would be all over this one but the clips are all sold out
I'm new to Massdrop, and this is the first drop i've participated in. Does the price get lower as the drop continues even though I've placed my order? How long will the item take to get to me once shipped?
eddie.lucas1175
There's a shipping estimate at the bottom of the page, " Estimated ship date is June 16, 2017.".
You are charged according to each milestone reached, regardless of when you place your order. So if you place your order before the drop reaches the lowest possible price. As long as it reaches that milestone, you will pay the lowest price.
Late for the copper ones
These are great pens. The steel version is my EDC pen, and I don't leave home without it. Shame it's not included in the drop.
Is it just me or is the picture of the clip actually the Sport clip?

Thanks for posting this photo!

Yes, it is a Sport clip.. good catch. I assume there is a Liliput clip for the drop. Pondering this drop in copper. The Sport is my EDC pocket pet..this would be a sweet EDC in the pocket... Only, I have a bad habit of giving my pen(s) to admirers, in the hope they will become fountain pen lovers too !
